Based in Rockford, Illinois, Sock Monkey Sound is a music and culture podcast. We have conversations about the state of music and culture in our world, picking apart musical genres while exploring the boundaries of our own perceptions and taste. Notable guests on our podcast have included Ian MacKaye (Fugazi), Colin Hay (Men At Work), Eric Bachmann (Crooked Fingers/Archers of Loaf), Hutch Harris (The Thermals), David Bazan and Dan Deacon, as well as members of The Dandy Warhols, Superchunk, Built To Spill, The Dismemberment Plan, Tokyo Police Club and many more.
On this weeks episode we dive headfirst into the world of knights, dragons, wizard and the arcane with Progressive, or as most refer to this enigmatic genre, Prog Rock. Some of the choices are spot on, others are up for debate as we discuss the merits of this esoteric musical form that was birthed in the psychedelic genre and mutated into it's gloriously cryptic beauty; as well as a hint of what the future may hold for the noble Prog Rock.
